The Summer Camp At-a-Glance with dates and age levels should make planning her summer camp easier to avoid any conflict with other family activities

The Proof Is in the Research! Did You Know?

  • Camp builds problem-solvers! Girls with more frequent outdoor experiences are more likely to seek challenges and are better at solving problems—qualities that will help them embark on a lifetime of leadership, both academically and personally.
  • Camp exposes girls to new experiences! Of girls surveyed, 72 percent said that Girl Scouts gave them the chance to build their skills or try new outdoor activities.
  • Camp builds courage and confidence! Spending time in nature improves a girl’s concentration and creative reasoning. Outdoor experiences also help promote healthy social development and increase her self-esteem.
